The Other Side of Terror offers insights from the literatures of India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. The Nepali writings concern the Maoist insurgency; those from Sri Lanka, the Tamil militancy. The Indian selections engage with manifestations ranging from the militant wing of the Independence movement to the various post-Independence terrorist movements, such as separatism in Punjab, the insurgency in Assam, and the Naxalite movement in Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, and Madhya Pradesh. The selections, comprising both original writings in English as well as translations from regional languages, include short stories, poetry, and excerpts from novels and plays.
